Tell us a little about yourself. I am a writer, a photographer, a paramedic, a volunteer chaplain, and an instructor of Emergency Medical Science. My stories are true, based on real experiences from the streets of Durham, North Carolina where I served as a street paramedic for seventeen years.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote Answering the Call to encourage my co-workers. To offer hope. To let other 1st Responders know that it's okay to share their faith in Jesus Christ. Too many Christians hide in the shadows, afraid to let others know what they believe. Afraid they might offend someone. This book was my way of saying, "This is what I believe. It's okay to tell others. Jesus Christ is my Lord, and he can be your Lord too."
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Answering the Call - Inspirational Devotionals from a Tested Paramedic Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." The First Responders in your community do just that. They sacrifice comfort and safety to protect the lives of others, always waiting, and always wondering when they will find themselves answering the next call. This book was written for them, but it applies to anyone who searches for courage and hope, struggles with a difficult relationship, or suffers through pain or loss. Are you seeking a closer walk with God? Wondering what comes next? Answering the Call can help you find your way. It reveals the simple truth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and that to follow him is to find true meaning in life. Christ is calling you now. Will you be answering the call? "The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off -for all whom the Lord our God will call." Acts 2:39
